Re: Don't go changing parts

Re: Zenith Sidebowl Parts

No, the side bowl was on 1931 Indented Cowl cars where they had the fuel shut off on the outside under the hood.

Re: Pan Gasket

I just did my truck and all I used was High Tack gasket cement just to hold the gasket in place. The gasket is what seals, you don't need all the items on the market. I took the pan off and it was...

Re: Water pump "studs"

Re: USPS damage in shipping

Re: Engine Bearings

WisconsinJimmy
Just a comment, the trend currently is to "insert" the Model A like Ford did starting around 1936. It really makes it a modern engine and you can do a lot more performance wise with...

Re: Shocks for a Model A 1930 pickup
